Nonagon

| 0 Comments | 0 TrackBacks

I've mentioned several times before how much my kids love They Might Be Giants and their Friday Night Family Podcast.  Well, they have this song, "Nonagon", about polygons at a party, and because of it, Karenna can now tell me the name of every polygon with nine sides or less.

I've been worn out all week, and I'll use that as the excuse for how Karenna outsmarted me:

Karenna: Mom, a nonagon has nine sides.
Me: I know.  It's a polygon.
Karenna: Two shapes are not polygons.


Me (thinking only of circles): Don't you mean just one shape?
Karenna: No, two shapes are not polygons. A circle has no sides, and neither does an oval. See... (She begins to demonstrate for me with her finger.)
